Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
I just had the exact same problem with my Samsung RS2534WW Fridge from Best Buy. I think the freezer seal was not totally shut and something inside was pushing against the door, so it couldn't close tightly, but was not open enough to trigger the chime alarm. In the morning, the freezer temperature display was blinking. Later on it settled around 59 degrees. Here's what seemed to work for my particular situation: First I pushed the ice selector button, from cube, to crushed, to No Ice. Then I unplugged the fridge for about 10 to 15 minutes. Next, I plugged it back in and held down the Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons simultaneously until the chime sound is heard. I read this should reset it, but my display turned completely off. So, I held in the Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons again and as soon as the display lit up, I let go. The freezer temperature no longer blinked and settled at 56 degrees. Next, I opened the lower service panel in the back. First, I verified the (evaporator) fan in the middle was running (it was). It seems to pull air in on the freezer side and blow it over the compressor and out the fridge side. The air intake side had a lot of dust, especially on the condenser coils, so I vacuumed it out. Next, I opened the freezer door and noticed a build-up of ice around the freezer air ducts in the back (both exhaust and intake vents). I then used my hair dryer to thaw out the ice and wiped up the water. Next, I closed the freezer door and the temperature read 59 degrees. It stayed on that temperature for 8 hours and then the temperature started to drop quickly and it returned to normal. At that point I turned the ice maker back on and it has been working fine ever since. Apparently, the unit has an 8-hour cool and defrost cycle. I read someone else turned off (unplugged) their fridge overnight with the doors open to let it defrost. When they plugged it back in the next morning, all was working fine. If those tips don't work, you may have a problem with either your cooling system or defrost system, or it could be something as simple as a blown thermal fuse. Hope that helps!

I FEEL THE REAL ISSUE TO WHY ALL IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY IS BECAUSE THE FREEZER IS NOT UP TO PAR. LOOK BEHIND AT THE COMPRESSOR AND NOTE IF THERE IS ICE ON THE FAT PIPE(RETURN PIPE). TYPICALLY IF SO IT INDICATES THE EVAP FAN IS NOT OPERATING.IF YOU HAVE AN EXTERNAL DOOR LIMIT CHECK TO SEE IF IT REALLY IS CLOSING. THAT RED LIGHT NORMALLY INDICATES PROBLEM WITH COOLING.IF YOU HAVE MECHANICAL COMPONENTS IE THERMO FUSE AND EVAP.CLIXON THEN REPLACE THEM.
